Daffy's Stitchy Friends

Birthday Mail

There was mail in my box today. Birthday mail! First up here is a birthday card & package from my dear friend, Joan, in London. Joan and I are long-time snail mail pen pals. Every year she sends me something from Red Nose Day. It usually shows up around my birthday. This year it is a pin badge and a charm. The charm will probably end up on my cell phone! Cute, cute, cute! Thank you, Joan!



Next I opened this lovely Post Box Floss Tag from Rachael, along with birthday greetings and some ribbon and Kreinik braid. I adore the post box...Rachael knows how much I love all things British. Thank you, Rachael, for thinking of me!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Finally, some WIP pictures. While waiting for March to arrive, I stitched a teeny bit on Peacock Cypher. There isn't a great deal of progress (not a lot of stitching time) but I was able to stitch the two butterflies and row of over-one lettering at the very bottom.


Then on Sunday, I was finally able to get out Crabby All Year and begin Wind for the month of March. Again, not a lot completed but it is a start.


Thank you all for the wonderful happy birthday wishes on my last post, and the emails too. You are such dear friends and I cherish you.

Cypher is looking really good and you've made a good start on Crabby for this month. I'm still working on your birthday present, was way too annoyed over the weekend to concentrate on it

Your progress is looking amazing :)
Enjoy your b-day goodies :)

Clara said...

Happy late Birthday! My birthday is this month too. It was yesterday, the 3rd. I had 4 days off from work too and it was wonderful-got a lot of stitching done and relaxed a lot.

Jan said...

Happy belated birthday! Somehow I missed it. Looks like you got some great stash. Hope you had a great day.

Tammy said...

Crabby and Cypher are both looking great. What cute gifts too-lucky girl!

Cute gifts :) I love British stuff too...I adore Midsomer Murders, partly because they're filmed on location in all those pretty villages ;)

Christine said...

Crabby and Cypher are coming along well. Love the red nose phone charm. My girls came home from school with their noses last week (well, obviously they always come home from school with their noses, these were their OTHER noses!), but I haven't seen the charms yet

Natalija said...

Lovely gifts :) And great stitching progress.

Have a nice day!

Yoyo said...

Oh, I love your 'red nose' items. I also have a friend who sends me some of those each each...and since my birthday is in a couple of weeks I might have something to so soon too. Cypher is looking gorgeous, you must have had more than a little stitching time, that's a long row of over one -- and it's very pretty!

Doris said...

Rachael said...

Glad it got there ok, Love what Joan sent you,Reminds me I need to get each of my kids a Red nose, for comic relief.
Peacock Cypher looks great,so does Crabby

Jo said...

Here's a belated Happy Birthday wish - I'm pleased you had a nice day! Peacock cypher is looking lovely, and I'm sure you'll have the next month of crabby finished in no time!
